Document Viewer

The insights of former President Eisenhower, which advised replacing the Speaker of the House in the chain of succession with a sequence of Cabinet members, were sought and incorporated. Knowing that the House, despite having 22 proposals related to Presidential disability and succession before it, was embroiled in immigration legislation and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Bayh and his staff decided to concentrate on passage in the Senate in order to enter the new Congress with that foundation of support.
